I would like to secure my wireless connection so people around me cannot use it. How do I do this? Can I let just one other person use it?

This is definately possible. You need to log into your router or modem, whichever provide your wireless.

Your user manual, which is usually included in the CD of your router/modem will tell you how to log on and set up the wireless security.

There are a few ways for you to do this.

You can set up MAC Authorization, where you can make it so only MAC Addresses that you supply.

There are also some other methods like WEP, which allows you to make a hex code that people will need to insert to connect to your network.

Once you get onto your wireless router/modem, I can help you more.
